Shaving Brush Vivo
Shaving Brush for Wet Shave Beginners.
Real badger hair is the ultimate benchmark for shaving brushes. One differentiates between hair from the badger’s undercoat (gray or black) and the finer, softer hair to be found on much less of the animal’s coat, which is naturally three-coloured: light in the lower area, dark, almost black in the middle and off-white at the tips. The clearer this delineation can be seen in the hair, the higher the quality of the shaving brush. This is simply because the silver tip hairs are more difficult to obtain and are more carefully processed – all of which is done by hand. The hairs are placed tip-first into a forming block and pushed until the desired contour is reached. The brush is not mechanically finished because it is the fine hair tips that give a good foam and then allow it to be applied properly to the skin.
Mühle has created this shaving brush with real badgers’ hair, and it is suitable for entry into wet shaving.
The best way to store the brush is upside down in a hanging position. In that way it will last for a long time.
Shaving Brush and Straight Razor by Mühle.
While not every craft business succeeds in balancing tradition and modernity, the Mühle shaving brush manufactory does: The still family-run company has preserved the traditional knowledge of the craft while welcoming new materials, manufacturing methods and contemporary designs. The manufactory in the Ore Mountains produces articles, 90% handmade, for wet shaving. The heart of the company is up to the present day the manufacturing of the shaving brush. The brush makers need a sure touch, a steady hand and a good eye to work with the fine badger hair. In the first step, they carefully sort the hair, weigh the fibres out to the tenth of a gram and then tap them into shape in a box. Then they take the 20,000 or so hairs with great care out of the moulding box and, without a single hair slipping out of place, tie them firmly into a tassel called loft. When they have finished the form of the loft, they glue and mount it on the handle of the shaving brush. They manufacture all brushes with extreme care, whether made of badger hair or special synthetic fibres; we offer both hair and fibres in a range of different qualities. Mühle produces the shaving brushes and razors in full at the company’s headquarters in Hundshübel. Parts are sourced as far as possible from the region.
